Ron Howard’s Newest ‘Han Solo’ Photo Features the Infamous Kessel Run


The upcoming Han Solo spinoff would be remiss if it didn’t address the most famous of our dear smuggler’s exploits: that time he and the Millennium Falcon made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.

For casual viewers, all that one throwaway line in A New Hope means is that the Falcon is a very fast ship. But if you have delved too greedily and too deep into Star Wars lore, you know that the Kessel Run is a portion of the hyperspace route smugglers used to transport their cargo from the spice mines of the planet Kessel. The route requires many velocity changes and sharp turns as smugglers hop in and out of hyperspace to make pickups and dropoffs, and it looks like we’ll see it happen for ourselves in the Han Solo movie.

Check out director Ron Howard’s latest photo below:

While this probably isn’t the Kessel Run itself (that part will probably involve a lot of CGI), that “Spicey?” seems to be a pretty big clue. Maybe that’s a lift in one of the Kessel mines Solo will be smuggling from. As you can tell, most plot details of the movie are still unknown, but it’ll probably deal with Solo’s time at the Imperial Academy, winning the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian, and his journey towards becoming a Rebel.

The Han Solo movie will hit theaters May 25, 2018.
